|Janet Hubert Blast Stacey Dash , Calling Her A Media H*e|
Hubert said she believes Dash's comments are simply allowing her to be a pawn for the media and she puts the "struggle [of the community] way back."
In a blog post on Thursday, Dash tried to expound on her controversial remarks, suggesting that black people need to "quit settling for scraps."
"It's hard to cut through the hysterical reactions to my comments the other day about Black History Month," Dash wrote on Patheos. "I feel like many of your reactions – saying that I've sold out to white people, that I'm 'coonin'' etc – show you aren't hearing me."
Dash, 49, suggested that black people shouldn't settle for just one month devoted to black history.
"In a hundred years, do you really want the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr, Frederick Douglass, and even Barack Obama to be discussed only in the month of February?"
"I think she's just saying this kind of bull because she wants sensationalism and she's working for Fox and she needs a job and she's making a check," she said. "And she's bringing controversy to herself. Stacey is a bit of a media ho."
Hubert reiterated that the existence of the BET Awards and the NAACP Image Awards are important as a celebration because without them "we would have nothing to honor those wonderful performances."
